If you’re a potential home buyer, but you’re also potentially starting a family – you may want to keep these key features in the back of your mind when you’re on your homebuying journey!
School district information – This is huge, and what most parents will tell you weighs the heaviest on their buying decision when it comes to a home purchase.
Crime rates – Obviously also a big deciding factor, as the safety of a neighborhood is important for not just yourself, but also for raising children.
Sidewalks – Sidewalks are key for growing up in family-friendly neighborhoods, Laura Agadoni writes via Trulia – think: bicycles, sidewalk chalk, endless amounts of fun.
Recreations – Nearby parks and playgrounds, that is. You’ll want to know if there are any, as they’re typically a sign of nearby-family friendly neighborhoods!
